The best days to view the Orionid meteor shower are coming up

The Orionid meteor shower begins in early October and runs through the first week of November.

The peak of the shower is right around the corner.

You can see the most shooting stars at once on Oct. 21 and 22. The meteor shower is caused by the Earth passing through debris left by Halley’s Comet.

This year the moon will be in the last quarter moon phase meaning there will be little light interference.

The best time is just before dawn.
